‘A charming historical read that hits all the right notes’ Woman’s Weekly
Dover, 1864: Violet Rayfield leads a happy life with her family in a beautiful terrace on Camden Crescent.
But Violet’s seemingly perfect world is shattered when her father makes a decision that costs her family everything. Now Violet must sacrifice all she holds dear, including the man she loves.
As Violet strives to pick up the threads of her existence, a series of shocking revelations leaves her feeling even more alone.
But where one door closes, another opens, and the embroidery skills Violet perfected while a young woman of leisure win her vital work.
If she can find the strength to stitch the remnants of her family back together, there might just be a little hope after all…
She loves reading about the history of the Victorian era, and her research for A Thimbleful of Hope ranged from maritime accidents to whitework embroidery and the dangers of the colour green.
Evie now lives in deepest, darkest Devon with her partner. She has a son and daughter.
